Rash ring shaped

Common Questions and Answers about Rash ring shaped


Avatar n tn i have an oval red ring shaped rash that comes and goes. i can not find a trigger it's usually in the morning. i have also started having night sweats.
Avatar n tn I have a roughly 1.5inch diameter oval-shaped ring (hollow with a light border) just under my left pectoral. It does not itch and it does not appear to be ringworm (no physical contact with anyone/animals). It is a very faint oval, it almost looks like someone bit me (I asked my wife if she bit me and she said no). Anyone?
Avatar n tn 3) Third possibility is of elastolytic granuloma. It presents with asymptomatic annular (ring-shaped) plaques on sun-exposed sites in fair skinned middle-aged men/ women living in sunny climates. You need to get it examined physically from a dermatologist to confirm the diagnosis. He/ she may even do a biopsy by taking a small skin scraping from the effected skin to confirm the diagnosis.
Avatar n tn A year and a half ago, I developed a large, itchy, ring-shaped red rash on the back of my thigh. Because of the bulls-eye pattern, I was treated for Lyme Disease, and the rash went away. I recently developed another rash in the same area. It is more scattered this time (as opposed to ring-shaped), but it is also very itchy. Cortisone cream does not help the itch. Before this latest rash, I have also had recurring itchy spots in that area that I thought were insect bites.
Avatar m tn It has a more rash like appearance now rather than just red bumps. And even those C shaped rashes that I talked about earlier are amongst it. So anyone know what the bumps or C shaped rashes could be? From a young age docs said I had eczema, I've always had pretty dry skin. I got the stomach rash a day after jiu jitsu practice. Not sure if it was the cause or coincidence.

Avatar f tn I have a round shaped rash o my back! It don't itch or hurt~ what could this be? I was thinking a ring worm but i don't have a cat or any animal! So what could this be?
Avatar n tn I have developed a red, 0.5 inch oval-shaped patch of skin on the dorsal head of my penis (pics). The red patch has persisted for more than 7 days without changing and without me disturbing it. It is mostly smooth, slightly red, the skin appears shiny with a different texture than surrounding skin. There appears to be a border around the area where the redness is more pronounced. No itching, no burning, no discharge, no pain.
Avatar n tn The outer rim may be slightly raised and composed of little bumps It can be mistaken for eczema or psoriasis. Ultimately it evolves into a ring shaped lesion. You should visit your pediatrician who will prescribe medication to be rubbed into the skin. Hope this helps.
Avatar n tn hi medhelp, i am 22 years old. a few days ago i developed an itchy, scaly/flaky rash on the side of my right index finger. it is oval shaped. i put some cortisone on it a few hours ago and it has stopped itching for now. this is not the first time i have had this problem. i first noticed a similar rash on both my right middle finger and a small section of my right hand about five years ago. they eventually went away after applying some creams.
Avatar m tn Hi there I have had these ring shaped rashes around my scrotum, on my upper legs for years. Recently I have noticed that the one I had, is not three or four and are getting bigger. I have taken photos so hopefully they are visible... This is my first post and I am not sure how to upload them yet! Thanks in advance for the help. Also, is there anything I can get from the chemist for it? Or am I really best to visit my GP?

Avatar f tn Tinea corporis is a skin infection due to dermatophytes, a type of fungi. Symptoms include itching and a ring-shaped, red-colored skin rash. The border of the rash looks scaly. Topical (applied to the skin) over-the-counter antifungal creams, such as those that contain miconazole, clotrimazole are effective in healing the rash. To cure the infection naturally, the affected region should be kept clean, dry and aired out(when possible). You can use anti-fungal or talcum powder for this purpose.
Avatar n tn Just in case it is not ringworm of the groin, whatever it is, I guess it looks similar to it. It's in a ring shape red on the outside and lighter on the inside. Areas near these ring shaped circles are red. And it does itch! I have been using clotrimazole cream 1% in the mornings and then tolnaftate cream 1% at the night to try to get ride of it.. I have been using the creams for a week now.. and I don't think its going away at all..
Avatar n tn Dear Dr, My 9 month old daughter is having an oval shaped rash on her chin size of a dime. It is red and slightly rised. But she is not scratching or touching that. I think its not itchy. She don't have anything other than this. I visited a dermatologist, she suspects it could ringworm or eczema but she is not sure because it is not itchy. She checked the sample on microscope, she saw something moving. she suggested Lamisil, it is not helping. It been there for about 4 months.
Avatar n tn About 3 months ago my girlfriend decided to do some acupressure with bell jars on my ankle, and the one that was able to stick caused a small dime shaped ring of light brown discoloration that has remained to this day. I'm worried about what the condition might be and the type of medical attention it may require. I've considered seeing a dermatologist, but it's quite tough to fit into my current schedule.
Avatar m tn It presents as shiny, 3-5mm, slightly raised purple-red spots or a rash with white streaks. It may also cause white ring-shaped patches. Usually it is diagnosed by physical examination but to confirm the diagnosis, a biopsy of the skin may be done by a dermatologist. This will confirm the diagnosis and also rule out other similar lesions like dermatitis skin, lichen simplex chronicus or eczema. Hope that this information helps and hope that you get better soon. Wishing you good health.
Avatar f tn could be ring worm....
Avatar f tn Over the next several days, the bumps grew in size (less than half the size of a dime) and seemed to form a ring. The outer ring seems to be pinkish/reddish and raised and the center is darker. They don't really itch and they don't hurt. They are sensitive it seems, to the beating, luke-warm water of a shower. I thought maybe ringworms at first, (I held a stray cat recently) but they don't really look like any ringworms I've seen on the net. Can someone help me know what this may be?
Avatar n tn About a year ago I developed a couple of small, ring-shaped rashes on the back of my arm, just below the elbow. I applied some topical cream and they went away in about a week. The other day I developed the same rash in the same spot. This time the rings are not as profound. Any idea what this could be? I'm heading to the doctor tomorrow to get it looked at. I also have been experiencing some mild chest pain when I breathe deeply. Any way these could be linked to HIV or other infection?
Avatar m tn its like a pinkish some what oval shaped ring the is more noticeable in like with a some what defined shape. no pain, burning, blistering,itching, and its not raised or shiny.just some more further description.

I posted this similar question yesturday but there was no reply....Pls Pls help me.
Avatar f tn It started by becoming lighter towards the center of the rash, however still scaly, just not red, yet the outer ring (to be clear, not a circle) was still red. Even later, it started spreading to the other side of my neck. I work in customer service so I was sick of this rash, it's hard to hide and I don't want to put makeup on it, so I took a break from taking the Apo-Minocycline and about a week later it finally started to fade. I had this rash for about 3 weeks all together.
Avatar f tn I'm a 19 year old male who has been struggling with some recent and pretty bad health anxiety. Imagine my anxiety when I looked in the shower and found this red, oval shaped ring on my arm. I had not used any soaps or shampoos so I don't believe it is an allergic reaction to such chemicals. I do not know if it was there before I took my shower, but I definitely first noticed it while I was in the shower which was around 10:30 pm.
Avatar n tn Ringworm fungal infections cause a ring shaped rash .It will spread if not treated and cause permanent scarring. Any inflammatory rash, bacterial rash can also lead to scarring. Get yourself evaluated to determine the cause of this scarring rash. I do hope you find this information useful. Best luck and regards!
Avatar n tn I have even heard it could be a worm virus, then it would resemble many oval shaped rash areas, that also you can get over the counter. Hope this helps!
Avatar m tn the rash affects the hair follicals but also the region is scally. i have attached a picture of the same; similary, i have ring shaped rashes near the elbows on both hands and now some coming up along the knees.
Avatar n tn my 11 year old son had a virus on Thanksgiving 5 days later he started itching from head to toe no rash no hives nothing. we started him on benadryl and calamine lotiong, not relief so the Doctor gave him allegra and cortisone, no relief. Then the dermatologist gave him a shot of kenalog, and prescription cortisone. still no relief after two emergency room visits they gave him hydroxine and blood workups for kidney, liver, and thyroid came back normal.
